Tournament Model Containing League Matches And Rounds

As we have come across many sets In the History of CAT...Tournament Model Sets Play A Vital Role...Here are few Strategies to Crack these kind of Questions in the Exam...

Concept

Let The Number of Teams Be 'n' And Each team Plays with Each other..Much of Like IPL and EPL...Then The Number of Matches Which Are to Be Played Are: nC2...For Example There Are 8 Teams..Then The Number of Matches = 8C2 = 28

Number of wins necessary for a team to ensure its place in next round is: +1..For Example..There Are 8 teams playing...So the Number of wins necessary for a team to ensure its place in next round is Greatest Integer Function(root(8c2)) + 1 = 5+1 = 6

If there is Football/Hockey tournament going on..And Partial Data is provided...(Remember A Hockey Set in CAT 2004)...Always Look For Key Facts:
Number Of Wins = Number Of Losses

Sum Of Draws In A Tournament Will Always Be An Even Number

Sigma(GF - GA) = sigma(GD) = 0...Always

If point system like...2 for win,1 for tie to each, 0 for loss is given...Always look out for Total Number Of Points Awarded In A Tournament...Because Number of Points Awarded In A Match will always be 2..(One Team would Win and Other Will Lose or Both of them Would Have A Draw)...Total Points Awarded In a Match would be = Number Of Matches * Total Points Given Per Match

If a variable data is given like...3 for win..And 1 each for draw...Use Equations..Here We Know that..Points Awarded In A match when it results in A win/loss = 3..And Points Awarded In A match ending in A draw = 2....Then Use Equations..Let x matches ended In Draw, and y match had definite result(either win/loss)..Then...2x+3y = Total Points Awarded...And x+y = Total Number Matches...From here..It would be Easy to find which of the matches Ended in A draw or definite result.

Consider A Score Line of this Type:

Team_____GF____GA___GD___
India_______ 4______4_____0____
Pakistan____ 4______5_____-1___
Australia____ -______-_____-1___
Spain_______6______4______2___
England_____ -______3_____2____
Brazil_______ -______6_____-____

In here..We don't know GF by Australia, England, Brazil...GA by Australia...GD of Brazil..... But We Know that....Summation of All Goal Difference = 0 So...GD for Brazil = Let say x x+0+(-1)+(-1)+2+2 = 0 So x = -2 Which Gives GF = 4 by Brazil...

Some Cents On Cricket Sets Too

Cricket Sets Like Football/Hockey Sets Are Similar. Instead of GF,GD,GA...we have Net Run Rate...Which is Calculated by X-Y

Where X = Total Runs Scored By A Team Till That Match/Total Numbers of Overs Played And Y = Total Runs Scored Against That Team till that Match/Total Number Of Overs Played By All the Opponents

In Simple Words... Let there Be 3 teams..India, Pakistan, Australia... Match 1 = India(301-6 in 50 overs) beat Pakistan(256-10 in 45 overs) by 45 runs Match 2 = India(245-7 in 42 overs) beat Australia(241-5 in 50 Overs) by 3 wickets Match 3 = Australia(276-10 in 48 Overs) beat Pakistan(250-5 in 50 Overs) by 26 runs

Here Runs Scored By India = 546 in 92 overs Runs Scored Against India = 497 in 95 overs So NRR = 546/92 - 497/95 = +0.7(approx)

Similarly We can calculate NRR for Australia As Well As Pakistan ...Which Comes out to be -0.11 and -0.58 respectively.....Here Also We can See that Roughly Summation of NRR of All teams = 0

check the figure you would understand. Conclusion '2' is not always true

Let f(x ,y) be a function satisfying f(x ,y)=f(2x + 2y, 2y -2x) for all x , y. Define g(x)=f(2^x , 0). What is the minimum positive integer p if g(x+p)=g(x) for all x?
(a) 4 (b) 6 (c) 8 (d) 12 (e) none of the foregoing
